Painting Mediums

Over at least the last one hundred years there have been many kinds of mediums who have produced paintings and drawings supposedly inspired by spirit contact. Judge for yourself.

Rita Berkowitz Psychic Artist

Florencio Anton

Painting medium Florencio Anton from Brazil says he became aware of spirit people at the age of eight and began developing his mediumship at the age of 11, producing spirit voices and automatic writing and first. Then dead artists began working through him and he has been giving public demonstrations for the past 20 years during which time he has produced over 5,000 paintings by over 100 artists. Each is said to be unique: he has never produced the same image more than once. The paintings are sold to support a charitable orphanage. Watch this video of Florencio at work in 2007.

Jose Medrado

A teacher, lecturer and Brazilian physical medium, Jose Medrado, was a medium from childhood. He only started painting mediumistically at the age of 27, when the spirit Renoir came up to him and proposed to jointly undertake a work which would "change paint into bread" in order to raise funds for the orphanage supported by his Spiritist Center, which was going through financial problems at that time.
His psychic powers have been tested by researchers in laboratories in Europe, where he gave lectures in many countries.

In Stanislav Grof's (pictured) book "When the Impossible Happens"
there's a chapter about Luiz Antonio Gasparetto, a psychologist from Brazil who is able to go into trance and paint in the style of a wide range of dead famous painters (Monet, Picasso, Rembrandt, da Vinci, Modigliani, Manet, van Gogh, Gauguin, etc). He doesn't just paint exact replicas of existing paintings but "new motifs rendered in easily recognizable styles of individual artists".
Dr Grof describes how they actually turned all the lights off except for one little red light over the paper (red so that he couldn't distinguish color)...he would at times paint with two hands two different paintings at the same time and even did one upside down under the table with his right foot. Loyd Auerbach who was present at one of the demonstrations writes: "The climax of the demonstration was when he did four paintings at once: one with each hand, one with each bare foot (these being done under the table at which he was seated), while his eyes were closed and he carried on a conversation. Each of the four paintings, by the way, was supposedly by a different one of the spirit artists (and they were, in fact, in four distinct styles that an art expert there related to the named artists).
